Gold is a way of going long on fear. Investors’ fear levels are particularly high right now, as the
coronavirus pandemic turned a global health crisis into an economic one. And it’s uncertain when
the world will recover from either of these crises.
It is in such times of uncertainty that gold is touted as a “safe haven” for those looking for shelter
from more traditionally volatile investments, like stocks.
“Compared to an investment in stocks, where even the biggest blue chip companies can (and have)
failed, an investment in gold often seems less risky, and time and again proved by the returns
offered on gold & silver.
Gold & Silver is the only instrument where there is never an entry level, which means right now is
time to invest, tomorrow is the time to invest and whenever you think is the time to invest. It is your
valuable returns along with cultivating a saving habit for your secure future.
GGC Gujarat Gold Centre is always striving hard to provide you the perfect quality and quantity at
the most competitive rate.
One of the empanelled refinery with in NSE Commodity Exchange which is within the perspective
of Indian gold standard. We commit to our valued customers that this is just a beginning, company
will keep growing and match with the world’s best refiner practice of the globe.

FUTURE OF GOLD REFINING IN INDIA



O ne major hurdle faced by all these refineries is the periodic interruptions in the supply side of their raw material, be it the poor air


cargo connectivity from Latin American mining countries to the Indian cities, international flight embargos in the COVID scenario,
disruptions or regulatory changes in the dore exporting countries, cyclical fluctuations in the availability of domestic scrap or
upswings in the price of bullion in the international market.

PROVENANCE, SUSTAINABILITY AND DESIGN:

THREE CRITICAL AREAS FOR VALUE ADDITION

Article by Nirupa Bhatt, Senior Advisor, GIA



Jewellery has been part of the

Indian culture for centuries. From
adorning deities in sparkling

jewels to gifting gold on special
occasions, jewellery has a vivid

history in India. Spanning a
legacy of 5,000 years, the

jewellery of India is a striking
expression of the country’s
aesthetic and cultural history.

Indian women have been

wearing jewellery for centuries.
Women across cross section of
society, from rich to poor, seniors

to young, every woman possesses
some form of jewellery that

appeals to them and can afford.
Jewellery is the sign of beauty
and femininity for women and

they love flaunting it at every
possible occasion. Designs kept

changing with each era and
every decade had its own trend.

Owing to this universal appeal, the Indian gem and jewellery industry has flou rished ov er time.
Participants of G & J supply chain are enterprising and they con tinuou sly learn, unlearnt and
relearnt newer processes and method s of business. All of this for just on e goa l – to make the piece
inspirational. The industry has been sharing infor mation abou t how a piece of diamon d for med

billions of years ago, changed hands multiple times and transfor med itself into a brilliant cut
polished diamond that will adorn women for ages to come. Market’s & con sumers’ evol ution is a
continuous process. And sometimes, we may not not ice the obvious. Tod ay’s con sumer, especially
post the COVID-19 pandemic, is mor e aware and concerned abou t soc io econ om ic
responsibilities of our actions, our environ ment, to name a few.

About the Author Provenance




Nirupa Bhatt is the Senior Advisor at GIA Consumers and particularly women are very
aware of provenance. There are significant
opportunities for retailers to engage with the
consumers on this basis. For example, silk
coming from specific regions appeal in a
certain way to a certain section of consumers.
We have stores which sell products only from
certain region. Workmanship in Chikankari,
Zardosi, etc. is chosen by consumers for their
detailing and the occasion. Can we build on
this aspect valued by customers? I believe
jewellers can make each jewellery piece more
valuable by adding the story of origin of the

gemstones, metal, artist, to name a few.
Communication with customers beyond price
is key to survival. Many in the industry
believe that jewellery is purchased as
investment. By adding origin story, appeal of
each jewel can be enhanced.

The discovery of newer diamond mines,
the growing interest of consumers in the
origin of the gemstones and the rapid

I B J A T I M E S b y P a s s i o n F o x

Sustainability





When we discuss sustainability, the image
that flashes across our mind is of a child
drinking safe water or a school full of
children in countries where precious stones

and metals are mined - South Africa, Russia,
Botswana. While socio-economic
development of local mining communities

is critical, responsibility of all participants in
the value chain: miners, cutters,
manufacturers, traders and retailers is crucial
to maintain consumer confidence in the
industry. We have several examples of Indian

dimantaires, jewellers committing resources
for providing health and education to under
privileged.
Sustainability focuses on meeting needs of the
present without compromising the ability of future

generations to meet their needs. The pillars of sustainability
are: Economic, Environment and Social. It is not enough to

source gemstones and metal from ethical sources, it is
important to ensure that three components of sustainability

are respected by the industry – small to medium to large
businesses. And communicate to the customers. This will
raise the credibility of industry.

Each one of us have a role to play and a responsibility to ensure we practice sustainability in our businesses,

howsoever small business we may run. This includes safe and healthy environment for workforce, appropriate
process for disposal of waste and hazardous chemicals, training, and wellbeing of the communities.

Sustainability should be an industry goal and remember that this process is a journey. Each one of us must strive to
raise the bar every day on the best practices, constantly seeking new sources and new methods to improve the

lives of others while protecting the planet Jewellery brings wide range of emotions to consumers. It can mean love,
memory, inspiration, exclusiveness, exotic, to name a few. It is certainly more than just beautiful - it does a lot of
good in the world. We have the opportunity to inform consumers that there’s more than the joy of wearing a

beautiful piece of jewellery – it contributed to socio-economic development, it supported a family, educated a
child, supported an artist.



I B J A T I M E S b y P a s s i o n F o x

Design



Speaking of artists, jewellery Designers play critical role in all

GOLD JEWELLERY SCHEME





This is one scheme that is in vogue in the country since time immemorial as it works for the middle class Indian
population who prefer gold jewellery as an investment option on multiple occasions. Under this scheme customers
are allowed to save a pre-fixed amount with the jeweller (similar to an SIP) for a pre-decided term. Upon the
completion of the term the customer is eligible to purchase a piece of gold jewellery from the amount saved on a
special discounted rate as offered by the retailer. Big market Brands in the gold industry offer these schemes and they
are extremely popular.

An investor whose sole aim is to invest and enjoy gains from it should ideally opt for non-physical gold products to
enjoy the feasibility of no storage and safety free things. However an investor should make a note that paper gold,
when converted into physical gold may be tax inefficient. Capital gains tax in inevitable at the time of buying
physical gold on the sale proportion incurred between the times of investment to the
time of selling.
